Charles Carroll of Carrollton was a courageous and influential figure in the American Revolution.

Carroll's mother, Mary Darnall Carroll, was a devout Catholic. Carroll received his early education at home from tutors. He then attended the Jesuit College of St. Omer in France, where he studied philosophy and theology. After graduating from St. Omer, Carroll returned to Maryland and began to study law.

Political Career

Carroll served in the Continental Congress from 1774 to 1776, and he was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Carroll's signature on the Declaration was a bold act of defiance against the British Crown. He knew that he was risking his life and fortune by signing the document. However, Carroll believed that the cause of liberty was worth fighting for.

Service in the Continental Army

After the Declaration of Independence was signed, Carroll joined the Continental Army. He served as a volunteer aide-de-camp to General George Washington. Carroll participated in several important battles during the Revolutionary War, including the Battle of Trenton and the Battle of Yorktown.

Later Career

Carroll was a strong supporter of the new federal government, and he helped to ratify the Constitution. Carroll retired from politics in 1792. He died on November 14, 1832, at the age of 95.
